I, as a retired person, generally fall into woodworking, scroll saw, as my past time activity. YES, I know, or should have, that shop dust and wearing some type of masks is important. But they are hot, limit breathing and are a pain. Well as someone with ironical asthma I have now landed in ER and the hospital twice this year. At this point I am still not cleared to be back in the shop. Well, now I have done a lot of reading on dust masks and respirators. Your first line of defense is to l...
Well I Got Ur Done today.Maybe now I’ll have wood computer cases out of my blood for now.First I cut up the top and made sure it would mesh with the frame.Then sanded every thing up one last time, and put some hand rubbed finish on it. Here she’s all wired up and on the go.I’m going to stick with a stock cooler for now, it’s so quiet and being it’s on a shelf right by me ear quiet is good.
My Thanks to Dan for the email on this process that is worth sharing.I know this is metalwork but I think it is highly possible to do it with wood.Has anyone done it. I would like to knowThere is a link to the whole process below. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AuS6HDHc7XE
I recently uploaded a new video to my youtube channel, I will post the link up at the bottom. I have been wanting to post up more videos of project builds and some other shop related things so a while back i posted up one video of me carving a wood spirit using a Dremel tool, this was my first video. a few days ago i posted up my second video of simple wood cutouts. It was easy to shoot and a fast project and using very limited tools. I am hoping to shoot more videos as the time goes on but ...
OK, I am at the frustration times 10 level. It seems like for the past six months of so NO ONE wants to purchase anything from me. When I started, about five years ago, it seemed that I was getting an order or two per week. Now it seems that I have to wait for the fall craft shows and hope I find a few good ones. I have looked and the list of items I make and gone over it LOTS of times. I keep changing too much depending on how the wind is blowing. I have really settled on three of four ty...
Hello all, We posted a new video to YouTube. We made a video slide show of some of the work we have done since starting in woodworking in 2002. Check out the video and watch our progression in our woodworking adventure. The mid century modern hall table we are working on is almost done. Part 2 to that video should be out in the next week or so. Thanks for watching and if you haven’t already don”t forget to subscribe to our channel. Here is a link to the video. https://www.youtu...
I just posted the next installment of my prairie sofa and love seat build on my blog. A LOT of pictures, discussion of design changes, and the fun of discovering the lumber you thought was awesome sometimes isn’t. http://dcwwoodworks.com/blog/2015/4/18/prairie-sofa-and-loveseat-part-2
I just posted a little story about my recent visit to the Frank Lloyd Wright’s Robie House, with pictures and some thoughts on the furniture and woodwork, and … RED OAK. http://dcwwoodworks.com/blog/2015/4/7/the-robie-house-and-red-oak As a woodworker, I find visiting museums and historic homes/buildings/places an invaluable source of learning and inspiration. What do you think?
Having had my “road to Damascus” moment, the realisation dawned on me that although I had just had a world beating business idea; I in fact had absolutely no way in which to achieve its fruition. After all, here was I with no tools at all, other than a very worn Phillips screwdriver, a decrepit claw hammer, a knock-off 12mm Marples “blue” bevelled chisel (with sides that could only be described as having been ground using the kerb) and a rather cheap and nasty ¼” drive socket set missing the ...
Where to start? At the beginning I suppose. Well, not the very beginning as that would entail going all the way back to a rather dreary wet Tuesday afternoon (and it was, I’ve checked) in an equally dreary and dank tenement building in Glasgow in 1968. For you dear reader I think perhaps that that may be a little too far and not very interesting and it would also be definitely far off the mark, as far as the subject of this tome to come is concerned, as could be. So, I guess I will begin s...
